Bear River State Park - Evanston
Bear River is a year-round park that offers nearly 300 acres that are ideal for picnicking, hiking, wildlife viewing, group activities, bicycling, skiing, rollerblading, remote control cars and many other activities. The park is home to a small head of captive bison and elk kept for public viewing. Three miles of foot trails are within park limits. They include 1.2 miles of paved trail and an arched footbridge that crosses the Bear River. Another 1.7 miles of packed gravel trails are on the of the west side of the river. The foot trails in the park also double as cross-country ski trails in the winter, weather permitting. This park is for day-use only: no overnight camping is allowed.
Bear River State Park and Travel Information Center are located on the eastern edge of Evanston, just off I-80 at Exit 6. For more information, please visit http://wyoparks.state.wy.us/Site/SiteInfo.aspx?siteID=1 .
